: My brother-in-law has this surname (means dawn). We pronounce it in English as Lie which is a close approximation of its Cantonese pronunciation.

: : I would like to know the corect pronunciation of my last name Lai. I know it can be pronounced Lie or Lay. I knew of a chinese family growing up who pronounced it Low (as in cow). P.S I am half chinese and quite ignorant about the language
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I too am half chinese and am quite interested in the pronunciation and of the meaning. If you hear anything pleases forward me anything. Please! Thanks

Anthony Lai
